BMW M4 gets 500hp DTM Champion Edition

The hardcore BMW M4 celebrates the German automaker’s win in the DTM championship with a special edition performance enthusiasts won’t want to miss.

Under the hood of the BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition is a straight 6-cylinder engine that cranks out 500 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque, allowing 0-100km/h acceleration in 3.8 seconds and an unofficial top speed of 305 km/h. An innovative water injection technology, previously seen on the BMW M4 GTS, enables cooling of the combustion chambers, significantly raising the engine’s thermally related performance limits by 16% in power output compared to the production model.

Inside the two-seater BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition, both driver and co-driver sit in M Carbon bucket seats covered in exclusive Alcantara/Leather Merino. The whole cockpit is trimmed with exceptionally high-quality Alcantara, even the M Sports steering wheel featuring a grey “12 o’clock” marker. Behind, a white rollover bar replaces the rear seats.

Outside, the hood, roof, rear diffuser, and more are made from carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP). The end silencer of the double-flow sports exhaust system featuring two pairs of tailpipes is made of titanium. As for styling, which mimics the DTM racing cars built by BMW Motorsport, the picture gallery below best describes how hot and intense the Alpine White BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition is.
